Information for Associates in Africa
We are sensitive to the needs of our associates in emerging markets such as African countries.
Filing and prosecution of European patent applications: We have extensive experience of all aspects of EPO practice and procedure, and deliver high quality services at competitive rates.
For the filing of European patent applications based on International (PCT) cases, we invite you to register on our portal www.pct2ep.com, at which you can obtain fixed quotes for EPO regional phase entry at very attractive rates.
Discounted rates: For clients in emerging markets, including all African countries, we are pleased to offer reductions on our standard filing charges.
Cost control: Our actionplus services, which give you the greatest control over ongoing costs, have been welcomed by many clients, including associates in emerging markets for whom avoiding unexpected charges is particularly important.
Filing and prosecution of EU trade mark and design applications: We can obtain EU trade mark and design registrations, efficiently and competitively.
Filing and prosecution of UK national patent, trade mark and design applications: If you opt for national registrations, rather than Europe-wide applications, we are able to represent you before the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office.
Charges, fixed fees and billing: We can bill in GB Pounds (Sterling) or in US Dollars if that is your preference. We will also be pleased to provide fixed quotes for the filing of applications and for other actions, wherever possible.
